Always watch what you say, pray to God to hold your tongue my dear,
Because you could hurt someone with words regardless if they are far or near.
Pray to God to give you what to say, in a gentle and humble loving way.
The feelings of others are precious; don't you play. Ask the Lord to help you to help someone today. As you watch and pray, it will be ok, because God will surely be with you all the way. Our Father in Heaven is so good and kind. He will always guide your mind. Just ask and you will see. The Lord is on time following your humble plea. When trouble comes, he is never late. Don't try to rush Him; relief is coming, if you have time to wait. He will give you the words to say if you learn to watch and pray. The unlimited powerful gracious God is patient; why can't you? My dear if you truly want Him to see you through. There is seen and unseen danger all around and everywhere, but there is peace no man can explain, because our God is there. God knows your needs and hears your heartfelt prayers. Look up and keep on climbing those heavenly golden stairs. So look to the hills from whence cometh our help is all I need to say, and Annie wants you to never forget to watch and pray. WRITTEN BY ANNIE LOUISE BYRD (Editor Victoria Lane)
